Chargers receivers: Geremy Davis

Geremy Davis, believe it or not, is tied for the third-oldest receiver on the team alongside Keenan Allen at 27 years old. He is bigger than many give him credit for at 6’3, 211lbs, and he plays like that size. Not the best route runner, Davis exceeds at making the physical grabs, as was shown last year when Geno Smith delivered an under-thrown jump ball that Davis owned and took to the end zone. Davis spent a small amount of time with the New York Giants in 2015 prior to joining the Chargers in 2016. His career totals are two receptions for 21 yards, though he has not caught a reception with the Chargers yet.

Geremy Davis was present on both offense and defense, but all of his impact came with a significant special teams role in 2018 where he totaled 13 tackles. Even when Keenan Allen went down in Kansas City, Davis didn’t get much opportunity to see the field. It goes to show that the Chargers really do need a third or fourth wide receiver to depend on going into 2019. Davis either needs to grow into that role, or he could see a younger receiver leap frog him on the depth chart, putting his own roster spot in jeopardy. Due to not much playing time, as the players above are the same, Davis’ highlight comes in camp, where he pulls off a good double move to get open downfield one-on-one.

Davis has work to do in preseason Week Four if he wants to solidify his spot on the team, as there are a lot of young players looking to make an impact not only on special teams but on the offense as well.
